Today people the world over will celebrate the feast of St. Nicholas, a fourth century bishop in Asia Minor who was known for his generosity. The facts of his life are mainly the stuff of legend but practices in his honor today endure especially where shoes left outside bedroom doors or lined up inside the entrance to a house are found to be filled with little treats – often sweets – in the morning.

What gift of myself might I give today to make someone’s life a little sweeter?
